dye job


before dye job

I have had this braided/knotted t-shirt from local designer A.Men for quite some time now.  Enamored by the design, but not too thrilled about the color, I bought it anyway, hoping I could find a way to wear it well.  (Plus it cost me a mere USD 10.)  Fast forward two months later, the obnoxious mint green color rendered it unwearable.

So yesterday, I decided to take on a mini DIY project: to change its color into a more tolerable hue.  Eight packets of dark blue dye and half a day of sun-drying after, this is the result:

Better?  Agree?

I'd have to say yes. I prefer dark colours to light and sober ones. haha

you have this shirt din pala! i love it but during the sale at dimensione i saw that it's the exact ripoff of a greyhound shirt! the greyhound version looks exactly like your before picture, color and size of the braids! oh well. lately they've been copying the eairth shirts naman...
